Cormier certain fight with Jones inevitable

by Brendan Conlan |
 

UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones has shrugged off challenges from Daniel Cormier before, questioning the unbeaten heavyweight’s star-power and ability to slim down to 205 pounds for the fight. However, Jones apparently rubbed Cormier the wrong way after essentially telling him to stop talking about the match-up until it is closer to becoming a reality.

Jon Jones, you’re firing me up,” said Cormier when asked to address the matter during last night’s Fuel TV coverage of UFC 156. “Where I’m from, you don’t tell a man to shut up. That’s one thing you don’t do. Jon Jones, you and I will get it done.”

Hmm sounds to me like DC is treating the Mir fight as a "warm-up" fight and already looking past him to a title shot. Well that didn't seem to work out so well for a certain fighter this past weekend..That being said, DC clowns Mir and gets the shot at Jones.

JJ has faced some very good wrestlers, and made them all look like novices. I didn't say they're equal wrestlers did I? I said JJ would be able to wrestle with him."he will never fight cormier at hw"Reading comprehension fail there buddy.

Jones has said in an interview i think i read on mmatorch that he will never fight cormier at hw and if cormier wants that fight he has to back up his talk and make the cut to 205Personally i think by that he means that cormier is too strong and powerful at hw and jones wants him at his weakest and out of his comfort zone... also that jones doeant believe he can make the cut... dc wins this fight by swinging jones around his head by his beard and repeatedly banging his head on the canvas.And lol at the peraon that said that jones can match cormiera wrestling...

DC can't make 205 if his life depended on it.  And even if he did -13 inch reach disadvantage this would be easy money for jones.

Cormier wants to be a champ in his own right, if he stays at HW to reach that goal him and Cain will eventually have to cross paths.They have potentially the strongest bromance in MMA crying together and stuff like that after the cain jds fight. These seem like guys that will stick to the will not fight each other stuff.He goes to 205 and reign as champ there, crazy to me but that's what it is.
